Last chance to sign up for tomorrow's free breakfast virtual roundtable on financing net zero innovation

There are just a few hours left to register to attend tomorrow's Net Zero Innovate virtual Breakfast Briefing, which will explore how bolster investment in the innovative companies and technologies that are critical to driving the next phase of the net zero transition.

Forming part of the Net Zero Festival's Net Zero Innovate Hub, hosted in association with Kingspan and Boston Consulting Group, the free-to-attend session will take place from 8:30am tomorrow, bringing together some of the UK's leading clean tech investors and entrepreneurs to discuss how to boost financial flows into the innovative technologies and businesses that are working to accelerate global decarbonisation efforts.

The hour-long interactive panel debate will feature Beverley Gower-Jones, managing partner at the Clean Growth Fund; Susannah McClintock, investment director at Sustainable Ventures; and Toby Gill, CEO at Intelligent Power Generation.

The session forms part of the Net Zero Festival's Net Zero Innovate stream, which will also include a raft of clean tech pitches from the leading early stage companies that attended the recent BusinessGreen Technology and Investment Forum and a series of video interviews with some of the key players in the UK's net zero innovation ecosystem.

"Innovation is absolutely critical to the net zero transition, and yet despite staggering progress over the past decade, economies are still not moving fast enough to fund, catalyse, and deploy the innovations that can deliver a decarbonised economy," said BusinessGreen editor James Murray. "The Net Zero Innovate events and accompanying content hub provides a great opportunity to explore how businesses, investors, and policymakers can work together to fast track the innovations the world desperately needs."

You can sign up to attend tomorrow's Net Zero Innovate Breakfast Briefing free of charge through the Net Zero Innovate website.

You can also now sign up for the main Net Zero Festival, which will run over three days from Wednesday 29th September and feature a raft of the world's top green business leaders and climate experts, including climate scientist Michael Mann, former Home Secretary Amber Rudd, solar aviation pioneer Bertrand Piccard, and top executives from the likes of Schroders, Bank of America, Engie, Boston Consulting Group, and many others.
